Colorado Rights Blog


  • One year ago, thousands of Coloradans marched in a historic display of resistance. At the ACLU of Colorado we carried that spirit throughout the year, fighting on many fronts for civil liberties. We won’t stop now.

  • By canceling DACA, Trump has put 800,000 young people at risk of losing their jobs and being deported from the only country they know as home. Passing the bipartisan Dream Act would protect them. We asked four Dreamers why the Dream Act is important to them and their future.

  • James Fisher spoke at the ACLU of Colorado Bill of Rights Dinner about how he and the ACLU are working together to stop the criminalization of poverty for the thousands of Coloradans who are trapped in debtors’ prisons.

  • Our membership has quadrupled in the last six months, making it possible to do more than ever to protect civil rights and civil liberties in Colorado. Thank you to all our new members, supporters, and donors, and the ones who’ve been with us for years.

RCRC Event: It’s Time to Talk About Reproductive Justice

Join the Religious Coalition for Reproductive Choice of Colorado as we welcome our panel of speakers for what promises to be a lively and informative discussion on reproductive justice focusing on the November’s ballot initiative, the so-called “personhood amendment.” Defining personhood is a controversial topic and is closely tied to concepts of equality, citizenship, and religion.

Personhood has long been a topic of debate. It was questioned during the abolition of slavery and the fight for women’s rights. It is the focus of discussions about abortion, and fetal and reproductive rights. There are many religious views on reproductive justice including what constitutes personhood, access to contraception, sexuality education, and reproductive health care including abortion.

When: Thursday, May 8, 7-8:30pm
Where: Temple Emanuel, 51 Grape Street, Denver

THE EVENT IS FREE. After short remarks from each of our presenters, the discussion will be opened to Q&A. Coffee, tea and dessert will be served. Although the event is free, please R.S.V.P. to with the number attending to ensure plenty of refreshments.

See flyer for more info.
